3:01 am
or exciting ones it helps enhance your excitement and be more joyous in life. >> what i love about music is that it bypasses the cortex. the sounds go right into the part of your brain that processes them, so you don't get caught up in the thoughts. when you think about great music, you are in the moment. each of you in your own way describe so artfully, elegantly how you find that space. even when are you tired, the ability to get to the zen moment, you are in the moment, is ultimately i think what we in this country look for. helps us with sleep, helps us become aware of things and deal with stressors and focus on things that we talk about today to make it easier to do the right thing. >> the garbage can around the country for a whole year, i felt a lot better. singing and gigging again. >> i want to thank cindi lauper, lisa loeb and madeline stowe for joining me. >> thank you for joining me tonight and a big thanks to

piers for letting me fill in. from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "early start weekend." >> we shouldn't be making a series of dumb, arbitrary cuts to things that businesses depend on. . >> but apparently, we did. while you were sleeping, the clock struck midnight and $85 billion have all but vanished. and the biggest to go broke. one american city's notorious distinction. the city is stepping in and maybe taking over. a brutal cross-examination of a suspected killer. but were these tears really genuine or all part of an act? it's saturday, march 2nd,
3:03 am
good morning, good morning, i'm victor blackwell. >> and i'm brianna keilar in for randi kaye. we start in washington with the spending cuts that were never supposed to happen. but they are happening. >> $85 billion in federal funding was slashed from the budget affecting everything from education to the fbi to food safety, national parks. the president is calling the cuts dumb and arbitrary. jessica yellin has more from washington. jessica. >> reporter: brianna, victor, the president has now signed the order triggering these forced spending cuts. administration officials acknowledge there was no kind of negotiating over a deal to avoid those cuts at a last-minute white house meeting with congressional leaders. they say the two sides are just too far apart. >> congressional leaders summoned to the white house for a last-minute meeting left less than an hour later with no deal. soon after the president came to the briefing room to give his
3:04 am
side of the story. >> none of this is necessary. it's happening because a choice that republicans in congress have made. >> at issue, mr. obama wants to raise some money by closing tax loopholes. republicans want no new taxes. instead, replace these unpopular cuts with more targeted cuts. both sides are dug in. mr. obama insists he's done everything he can to reach a deal. >> what more do you think i should do? okay. i just want to clarify. you know, because if people have a suggestion, i'm happy -- it is a room full of smart folks. >> some in his own party have suggested the president could use the power of his office to pressure both sides to move past their lines in the sand. >> couldn't you just have them down here and refuse to let them leave the room until you have a deal? >> i'm not a dictator, i'm the
3:05 am
president. i can't have secret service block the doorway, right? i understand, and i -- i know that this has been some of the conventional wisdom floating around washington that i should somehow, you know, do a jedi mind meld with these folks and convince them to do what's right. >> reporter: the president also tried to paint a picture of the spending cut's impact. >> border patrol agents, fbi agents, civilians who work at the pentagon all will suffer significant pay cuts and furloughs. >> the administration has come under fire for those warnings, including from new york's billionaire mayor. >> there's a lot of posturing, i'm going to lay off my employees today unless you do something. >> what do you say to the people like mayor bloomberg who think the effects of the spending cuts are being overstated by the administration. >> the notion that the army base
3:06 am
might be disrupted, that's an impact. that family will feel that impact. >> still a careful balancing act for the president who is trying to keep public sentiment on his side over what could become a fiscal crisis. >> this is not going to be an apocalypse as some people have said. it's just dumb. and it's going to hurt. >> reporter: don't expect to see the president crisscross the nation talking only about spending cuts. he'll move on to focus on immigration, guns, and other domestic priorities while the administration waits for congress to work out the fiscal mess. >> thanks, jessica. now, despite the cuts air traffic control towers will not be shutting down for now. an official had warned the cuts would mean more than 160 towers would be shut down next month, which could've resulted in airport delays.
3:07 am
now the faa says that warning wasn't authorized. but many air traffic controllers will be forced to take unpaid days off as a result of the cuts. some environmentalists are outraged. it says the pipeline would not have a significant impact on the environment. now, remember, the pipeline would run through the heartland of the u.s. from canada to the gulf coast and carry 830,000 barrels of oil a day. the new report sets the stage for president obama to decide how to proceed. >> more importantly, what happens if you've got the obama pipeline. now it's the obama pipeline and it leaks. his legacy could be the worst oil disaster in american farmland history, he's got to make a tough choice. >> well, supporters of the pipeline say it will create 5,000 jobs and could reduce reliance on imports from other countries. peter king is slamming marco rubio for fund raising in his
3:08 am
home state. king says new yorkers shouldn't give a penny to the senator because he originally voted against aid for victims of superstorm sandy. >> senator rubio voted against it, never came to new orleans to inspect the damage, never spoke with governor cuomo or bloomberg, he just voted no as if this is like accepted policy that national republicans can vote against new york. that's bad enough. then i understand he's in new york trying to raise money apparently for his presidential campaign. i was thinking in my case, if i had voted against aid to louisiana after katrina, i wouldn't have thought of going to new orleans to raise money. or if i refused aid to florida, i wouldn't have thought of going to miami to raise money for myself. it's time new york to send the signal, we've had enough. we're not going to allow this to go on where politicians can attack new york, vote against new york, and we're not looking for a bridge or tunnel or some special project, this is life
3:09 am
and death we were talking about. >> rubio later voted in favor of aid for sandy victims. the man charged in last july's movie theater massacre may plead not guilty by reason of insanity. in court papers made public yesterday, lawyers for james holmes say they can't make a final decision on the plea until a judge rules on their motion challenging the constitutionality of colorado's insanity defense. they must expose incriminating information. that could include his mental health records plus a notebook he sent to his psychiatrist. in about an hour, rescuers will resume a search for a man swallowed for a sink hole. >> the house just fell through. >> okay. and what happened to the house? >> the bedroom floor just collapsed and my brother-in-law was in there and he's underneath the house. >> okay.
3:10 am
hold on one second. let me connect you with ems. >> okay. >> that was the 911 call made to police early friday morning. witnesses say they heard a deafening sound and then a sink hole opened up under jeff bush's bedroom. his brother tried to save him but was unsuccessful. and jeremy broke down in tears as he spoke to anderson cooper last night. >> i'm so sorry for what you're going through. and -- what happens now? i mean -- where are -- >> there's a picture of my brother right there. there's a picture of my brother right there. the man i love. the guy i always -- he's my brother, man. he was everything to me. that's him. >> officials say the sink hole is still expanding and could eventually take the whole house with it. overseas now, hugo chavez is fighting for his life according
3:11 am
to his vice president who says chavez is being treated at a military hospital in caracas. chavez recently returned to venezuela after undergoing cancer treatment in cuba. his health kept him from attending his own inauguration in january when he was elected to a second six-year term. and president obama has nominated the first female superintendent of the air force academy. michelle johnson is currently nato's deputy chief of staff for operations and intelligence. she graduated from the academy where she was the first female cadet wing commander. johnson's appointment still needs to be confirmed by the senate. the birthplace of the u.s. auto industry is on the verge of bankruptcy. will someone step in to bail them out? and did the nfl go too far during this week's scouting combine? we'll tell you why league officials are now investigating some of their own members. you can spot an amateur from a mile away... while going shoeless and metal-free in seconds.

one of america's largest cities is just about broke. so the state of michigan is stepping in to take over detroit city government. if you go across the city and talk to people, there's probably no city more financially challenged in the entire united states. if you looked at the quality of services to citizens, it's ranked among the worst. so we went from the top to the bottom. over the last 50 or 60 years. >> that was michigan's governor rick snyder at a news conference yesterday. he announced the state is taking drastic action and appointing an emergency manager to run the city government. that manager will have the power to cut spending and throw out city contracts if necessary.
3:16 am
the mayor, maybe not surprisingly, disagrees with the decision. >> the state has not been as good to detroit as i think they should have been. because we lose revenue sharing based on our population loss. and so there's just a myriad of things right now and most of it revolves around revenue and, you know, we can't cut our way back out of this problem. i think we've cut as much as we can cut. we've got to think about how we can raise revenue again. >> now the question is how long will it take to turn the city around? the governor told wolf blitzer this won't be a quick fix. snyder says he already has a top candidate for the manager post. things get harry for hagel, and honey boo boo, she's going worldwide. here's a look at the week that was. >> the battle of hagel's nomination is over. >> that's a reality. >> the red shoes of a pope gone. >> it's got to be done because

3:18 am
asked if you have a girlfriend, are you married, do you like girls? >> that's a big no-no. >> any federal, local, or state law says you cannot base employment on someone's sexual orientation. >> the nfl is investigating the allegations. >> as you know, the pope a couple years ago was fired. >> i'm sorry, come again. >> they caught him stealing communion wafers. >> not exactly, but he did resign and said good-bye to something else. >> he'll dispense with his signature red prada shoes. >> he will trade in the red ones for brown ones. >> he'll no longer be able to transport himself to kansas. >> the shoes he had to give back, but we should expect to see more of them. >> like most catholics, he'll be back for christmas and easter. >> honey boo boo is going worldwide. >> you better recognize. >> that should be good for our reputation abroad. >> tlc announced the hit show is already number three in poland. >> in other countries it would

march is national nutrition month, and this morning, we're talking about how to prolong your life expectancy. we all know that exercise can help decrease the risk of disease, but if you mix that in with a healthy diet, you'll be on a long road to a healthier and hopefully longer life. fitness and nutrition expert desiree nathanson is here to talk about how we can extend our life expectancy. good to have you back. >> good to be here. >> so we know if you eat right, you can do well. but are there exercises that can extend a lifetime? >> well, there was actually a study done a few years ago that showed doing just 15 minutes of
3:54 am
activity a day could increase your life expectancy by 14%. and it could also increase your life expectancy by three years. so just 15 minutes a day. >> of what? >> so, for instance, i have a quick circuit you can do anywhere. you pick four exercises, you do it four times through and you do 45 seconds on 15 seconds off. so you can do 45 seconds of dips or push-ups, 45 seconds of squats, which we've done before. >> many times. >> 45 seconds of a plank and 45 seconds of jumping jacks, but rest for 15 seconds in between. that's 16 minutes, that's your 15 minutes a day. >> it's simple. >> it is very simple. >> there was a new study that came out that made everybody excited. >> yes. >> the mediterranean diet can extend your life, right? what's a part of this diet. we've got some of the food here. >> and we've known that the diet is beneficial for your health, but this study proved it lowered your risk of cardiovascular disease, which in turn will

extend your life expectancy. >> if the heart still works, you're still around. >> that's an important part. >> it is. >> it's mainly the fruits and vegetables, the whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes. that's what you want the base of your diet to be. top that with a mediterranean diet, you want fish, fatty fish like salmon, tuna -- >> i've started eating roasted eel. >> that's seafood, so three times a week. >> and if you're going to have meat, you want to substitute red meat with poultry. and you want it to be a small serving, perhaps a deck of cards and maybe just one or two times a month. >> hard to stick to. >> yes. and then low fat dairy products, yogurt, milk, and a fun part of the mediterranean diet is the olive oil. this is a big component of it and it's extra virgin olive oil. so substituting butter with olive oil. dipping your bread in olive oil, use it in cooking, that would be huge. >> and i thought you were going to say the fun part is the
3:56 am
chocolate. >> yes, that is the fun part. so sweets are optional. and you want to do them in moderation. but if you have dark chocolate, you can melt it and eat some fruit with it or have it on its own. and wine, let's talk about wine. just because it's in the mediterranean diet, does not mean you can have a bottle a day. it's one glass a day for women and up to two glasses for men under the age of 65. >> okay. >> and that doesn't mean you can have seven glasses on saturday night if you haven't had any more. >> good mix. thank you. >> thank you, victor. so joan rivers and heidi klum, they're friends, why are some people demanding rivers apologize for what she said about heidi klum. hear rivers' comment and decide for yourself in the next hour. mine was earned in djibouti, africa, 2004.
